1. We can't afford it.
2. We don't need to go further down the road of a militarized state.. we've already gone too far.
3. A more effective strategy would be simply to penalize those who hire illegal aliens. (Of course we all know... that isn't going to happen)


1 - We can afford it. When discussing costs, people talk about the money enforcement costs, but never the money saved in not having to give illegals government programs like welfare or providing their kids with school. There's a savings that is not ever placed in the equation.

2 - Removing illegls isn't a militarized state, it's just enforcing current laws. And we know where they are.

3 - Yeah, I agree. But it would be nice to see this happen. Enforcement of the current laws on that is all that's needed. And if you're worried about the cost of #1. Increase the fine to business to increase the funding.
